saying safeway -- it says that the petitioners don't follow corporate policies, they block enchances and harass customers so safe way is taking action. in some cases there are injunctions. in those cases this could be settled in court. i just hung up the phone with the organizer of the protesters and he tells me it's an intimidation factor on behalf of safeway. he says you know what, though. it's not going to work. these petitioners are going to be out. he says the next step for them is to start a letter writing campaign to the bar association. >> thanks for the update marla. >> let's check on whether christina is here to tell us about. >> with weather like this you probably don't want to go to work. it was so nice in the city yesterday. we're going to see more cloud cover this morning, as a result
it's going to take longer for the sunshine. i think by about 11:00 a.m. we'll see the sun break through. this is what we're looking at. we have this really interesting setup now. typically this time of year high pressure builds in from the eastern pacific and warms us up. it stays put. but we have seen these trough after troughs come through the bay area, kicking on the onshore flow, starting us off with mostly a loudy condition. that's what's keeping us cool each and every afternoon. high pressure is going to warm us up. another trough dips into the bay area. that will keep things cool all week next week. if you look for a heat wave we don't have one. we have fog, though, in san francisco we're seeing the deepest fog gets the most between santa rosa and san francisco. give yourself extra time. concord, you've got 10 miles of visibility. expecting these to fall. this is what we're looking at. temperatures a little chilly in novato, 46 degrees. bring a jacket.
if you make up in san mateo, at 54. as we head through lunch, 71 in san jose. and temperatures overall just about the same as yesterday. i bumped them up, tri-valley, that's about it. 77 redwood city. and 80 in santa rosa. i've got your weekend forecast coming up. you've got to get to work before you get to the weekend. >> true, christina. let's try and help folks. we have construction where folks were working. lower deck that looks like it picked up. i was going to show you the shot but the clouds have rolled in. there is some fog out there. watch for that. also a new accident off of the upper deck into san francisco. i'll track that. construction has cleared. looks like that's early as well.
antioch on schedule. we did see through concord as well. 580. yesterday at times coming out of the altamont pass. smooth now. a 15 minute drive. but john and laura, traffic out of the tri-valley. it's a heavy commute. >> could be a busy morning as well. we're getting breaking news of a fire in san francisco. broke out really minutes ago just before 5:00. we're told it's 1221 masonic. that is close to hay south of the panhandle near buena vista park. we're going to find out more information as we have a crew on the way to the scene. >> we'll keep you updated the time is 5:10. still to come using a deadly disease to safe a life. new hope for the breakthrough in

grad. john bellowes is an economics graduate and now works for the u.s. treasury department as the acting assistant secretary. he did the math and pointed out the debt is 8% points lower over 10 years which means the public debt is more stable. standard & poor's says they decided to go ahead anyway saying the decision wasn't based on the math but based on political gridlock over the debt ceiling vote. >> despite plans to cut more than 6,000 employees, networking giant cisco is wringing in the cash. the company reported better than expected earnings for its fourth quarter yesterday with $11.2 billion in revenue. analysts had expected the earnings to be slightly lower. the earnings report gave cisco share as 10% bump in after hours trading. >> that could help wall street when the opening bell rings.
futures expected a bit higher. for more on that and news before the bell let's turn to courtney reagan. good morning. >> good morning. here we go again. you're going to want to strap yourselves in. it's shaping up to be a volatile day. now we're lower again. the markets yesterday erased tuesday's gains and then some. they were lower by financials, bank of america fell 11% on recession worries and losses in europe. the markets overseas rocked by rumors that france could be next to lose its aaa credit rating. gold a safe investment hit a record of $1800 an ounce before pulling back. that's lower a bit as well too. analysts say the huge moves suggest the emotions are playing a big factor. the dow plunged 519 points yesterday to 10,719. the dow has lost more than 2,000
points over the past 14 sessions, closing lower in 11 ever the 14 sessions. the nasdaq shed 101 points to 2381. uncle sam wants you to rent a house from uncle sam. the obama administration is looking for ideas how to turn the government's inventory of unsold foreclosed homes into rentals that could be managed or sold in bulk. the goal is to try to stabilize neighborhoods where a large glut of empty foreclosed homes are hurting property values. the usda releases the first estimate of the fall harvest. analysts expect the hot weather that affected much of the country likely hurt corn crops. it's believed the heat wave shank potential corn output to a size that may barely satisfy the red hot food, feed and fuel demands. back to you. >> thank you very much.
>> let's get updated when it comes to the forecast. >> you know, she said it. most of the nation, well, the midsection anyhow, under a heat wave lasting for months. for us we have been really mild. we've got more of that today. and we're going to warm up a bit over the next couple of days but it's not going to last. another trough of low pressure keeping things mild all next week. if you are looking for a warm-up we don't see anything out there at least for the next ten days. that strong ridge that sets up out in the pacific, we're not seeing that. fog is the story of the morning. you'll find thick fog in the santa rosa area, the north bay. we have a lot of mile and a half. about 10 miles or better looking pretty good. throughout this afternoon the temperatures are going to climb from the upper 50s into the upper 70s and mid 80s in spotsment at noon as you break for lunch, in the east bay and the south bay, 71 degrees in san
jose at lunch. might be a good day for outdoor lunch plans. throughout the afternoon in places like redwood city, 77 degrees. 72 in santa cruz. 85 in los gatos. we gradually climb in temperature but not by much as high pressure does take control tomorrow as well as into your saturday. that's going to bring us up to 86 degrees. you see that on the seven-day outlook. then another trough backing us down to the 70s. so early fall-like weather for us in the bay in august. i can't believe it but i like it. back to you, mike inouye. >> i would say august, early fall. definitely. we had early clearing for construction on 880 and dixon landing road. that reopened. 280 at the 880 interchange is cleared. 17 still has a couple, specifically past highway 9 for repaving and by grant creek.

up with that 62. that's down from 68 we saw a few minutes ago. with a live shot at the oakland area, reminder the raiders hay their first preseason game, 4 sclok when the parking lot opens. the crowds probably wait for that to reopen, raider nation, some pretty strong tailgating. >> thank you. we're keeping our eyes in school this is morning. the schools in palo alto wondering if they can afford the big expense for better security systems. burglars broke in on sunday night. it's the third time the school has been hit since june. palo alto high school and the middle school have been hit. they steal lap tops, cameras, ipads and ipods. >> the time now is 5:20. coming up is there any one in san francisco who isn't running for mayor. who is the latest candidate to throw his or her hat in the
>> welcome back everyone. live look outside from the south bay this morning. pretty mild temperatures for today. it is 5:23 now. the field of candidates running to be san francisco's next mayor just got a little more crowded. former supervisor tony hall will file his papers to be placed on the ballot later this morning. hall has 35 years of political experience in san francisco. life long independent was elected as district 7 supervisor in 2000. in 2004 he was appointed as the executive director of the treasure island development authority. the event starts at 6:00 tonight
at the african-american art and culture complex. >> thank you very much. pressure of the markets and washington's inability to do anything starting to get some people, scott mcgrew. >> everyone in washington can share the blame regardless of party. for letting the deficit spiral out of control, then failing to take concrete action. that fact became too much for one msnbc anchor. >> and we're sitting here arguing about whether we should do the $4 trillion plan for 2017 or burn the place to the ground. both of which are reckless, irresponsible and stupid. the fact of the matter is until we actually and i'm sorry to lose my temper but i tell you i've been coming on tv for three years doing this and the fact of the matter is -- >> once in a while i feel exactly the same way. so how strange are things, san jose's cisco systems said profit dropped by a third. now when you take all of the
costs out of cisco's quarter, the cost of taking away jobs from thousands, the returns were better than wall street expected. that has traders in a better mood. better than expected and good financial results are not the same thing. the head of the fcc says it's time for the 911 system to work with the way we communicate. text messages. julius says you ought to be able to send a picture of a bad guy to police, for instance, he says it's strange that you can text someone that your plane is delayed but you can't text that the bank's being robbed or text the police. >> no sense. >> he is pushing for new 911 systems in which we can do that. >> it sounds like a positive move in that direction. >> is it does. >> it's 5:25. still to come on "today in the bay," from new york to l.a. in 12 minutes? the fastest plane in the world about to go on its first test run. we'll show you what it's made

>> better luck getting there because the upper deck, we had a disabled vehicle, that fifth getting into san francisco it's marked on my map but we can remove it now behind where it says "today in the bay." to the north, though, out of san francisco up to tiburon boulevard, a disabled rig blocking one lane so that's not cleared going into the area we might have fog and drizzle. we're watching this and the south bay. >> thank you very much. >> not the way we hoped this one would end. two women rescued from a fire sunday died from their injuriei. the 85-year-old woman and her caregiver died yesterday at san francisco hospitals. the city medical examiners identifies identified them as marilyn and her care giver connie yim. the fire was not huge but it did cause damage to the roof and the upper floor bedroom. the women suffered burns and
inhaled a lot of smoke. and they were taik taken to the hospitals in critical condition. >> it's called some of the most promising new in the fight against cancer. scientists believe they found a new way to kill cancer cells and save lives. only three patients got the treatment for the most common form of leukemia called chl. one was told he had weeks to live but he is now cancer free. here's what the team at the university of pennsylvania did. they removed white blood cells that normally fight infections, evening hered with a harmless form of hiv to attach to and kill the cancer cells. >> each of those patients more than a pound or two of tumor was eradicated. >> pretty amazing. the research concept is so new that neither the national cancer institute nor pharmaceutical
companies could fund it. barbara did, she and her late husband started a charity to fund new ideas after their daughter-in-law kim died of breast cancer. now money from the federal government is pouring in. we'll continue to monitor that. amazing development. it's 5:32. we're now about an hour away from the opening bell on wall street. right now european stocks are bouncing back as banks recoup hefty losses. this despite worries about a debt in countries like greece and italy. asian markets closed under pressure. the nikkei slipped.6%. >> in the market goes oun housing is an issue. bay area foreclosures, the short-term outlook is good. that's not a sign of what's to come in the long term. according to realty track.com fewer bay area homeowners went

court. as many as 50 gathered outside safeway headquarters in pleasanton. some holding signs, coop said stop safeway's attack on free speech. safeway says if they were to comply with corporate policy which requires people to check in with the store manager before they set up shop outside, then this weren't be a problem. now i spock to the organizer of yesterday's protest. safeway has hired an attorney. this is what they have been told. >> he said despite the heavy intimidation this is not going to stop organizers, petitioners from gathering outside local safeway stores and in some cases

shaping up. we know the republicans on the committee, a lot of them far right conservatives who oppose tax increases. you might ask what's different with this deficit committee than what we saw last spring which almost sent us into default. there is a little bit of a difference here, in the fall there is an incentive because if they don't come up with agreement or if it's one that congress won't pass we're looking at automatic budge cuts. so these democrats or republicans have a reason to get together. not to mention what we're seeing on wall street 500-point slide. lots of people worried about their retirement, investments in the market. president obama asked should he postpone his vacation, bring congress back. in an interview the president said there is no reason to bring congress back early if all they are going to do is fight. they are setting this up for
